It is interesting that ASUS is dropping the RT tablets. I recently purchased a Vivo Smart Tab with the full Windows 8 on it for the in laws and it suits them perfectly. It uses all their old software and they don't mind the tabs on a tablet.
The specs are a bit low... but for the price is was decent, and when hooked upto a bluetooth mouse + keyboard it's just another PC.
The RT versions of things however, not so great. You can't just install normal windows software.. you're stuck with what is in their app store (there are some workarounds, but not really worth it). They are really a late to the market iPad/Nexus.
Glad Asus have noticed and ditched it, now if only MS realised the same thing...
